The Enigmatic Nazca Lines—A Message To The Star People?

  • Frank Chapeau

    Does anyone else think “the Labyrinth” might actually be “the Central Nervous System”?

    To begin, any correlation with constellations as we know them is at best a coincidence. A constellation is nothing more than stars connected through an imagined line, thus they could have been vastly different and in non-western cultures, they were! Saying that the Nazca lines could have been influenced by the constellations of a culture that had no contact with the culture that created them is a stretch of logic. Constellations aside, Sirius (though it’s name has little meaning) is in fact the star that appears brightest in our night sky. However, one point can connect with any other single point in a straight line. For instance, at this very moment I am on a direct line with the President of the United States but I also am in line with the moon. This doesn’t mean anything beyond a line can be drawn between two points.

    Now as for the Nazca lines themselves. Making the lines is indeed a bit of a task, it’s hard to make monumental works. However, it’s not impossible by any means. By drawing out the shape you hope to make and using a standard measurement, making something like the Nazca lines becomes substantially easier. I’ve even made a version of the spider ant. It wasn’t an exact recreation, but it took about an hour to make a pretty large spider ant in the snow. Given more time for planning, it would have certainly been possible with nothing more than a ruler and something to mark important junctions.

    As for what the Nazca lines were meant for, there are a couple of theories by anthropologists. One of the theories is that at least some of them (not the animal shaped ones) correspond to above and below-ground water sites. Another theory is that the geoglyphs were, in fact, a means of communication but not for aliens. Depending on who is asked, the geoglyphs were to either ward off or draw in the god Kon.

    For more information I would really suggest reading “The Nazca Geoglyphs: A pictographic creation story” by Darren Iammarino or, for something with more depth, “Nasca: Eighth wonder of the world?” Anthony Aveni.
